, john, good morning. >> reporter: dan, bianna, good morning. if you have never heard of small business saturday it's only been around for three years, but it's starting to catch on. american express said last year, more than 100 million people participated in the shopping holiday. now, it's aimed at being the opposite of those wi wild scenes that we saw the day before on black friday. so what was this pushing and shoving about? new numbers out this morning show thanksgiving day shopping took a big bite out of black friday. consumers spent just over $11 billion friday. but that's down almost 2% from last year, and online sales rose more than 17% on thanksgiving. more than 20% on friday. >> people are going to get hurt! >> reporter: and on small business saturday, a day to support your local mom and pop store, shoppers found a way to avoid the crush at the mall. >> we have a 3-year-old, and this is one-stop shopping. we got everything we need all at once. they're wrapping our gifts right now. >> reporter: and you missed the crowds? >> no crowds. i mean, no crowds. >> reporter: west side
's time to decide. dan simon looks at the pro and see cons and what it means for merchants. >> reporter: on line versus brick and mortar. the value for your dollars, perhaps, has never been so intense. for years amazon had advantages in key states like california. low sales tax. local book stores already on pressure for the rabid rise of ebooks feel particularly squeezed. michael tucker owns a chain of book stores in san francisco. >> if you can save 10%, why wouldn't you? >> reporter: but amazon's tax advantage recently disappeared in california, adding 7 to nearly 10% to the cost of each order. it also began taxing this year in other states like pennsylvania and texas. on-line retailers collect tax only for states where they have a physical presence. now here in california, amazon is building two giant warehouses, including this one near los angeles. it's a million square feet, and for the old-fashioned retailers, it's another reason to worry. why? because amazon's goal is to get items to customers faster and to be able to offer same-day delivery. that's right. you can avoid stores if
leadership program. dan jordan and steven tennis (sounds like). >> hello, i'm dan jordan, a peer counselor with the central city sro collaborative and i live in an sro hotel on 6th. this hotel like so many is a walk up. mine is a four floor building. i live on the top floor. there's a lady that uses a wheelchair and is virtually held prisoner in her home. she cannot get in and out of the hotel unless someone is willing to carry her wheelchair down the stairs and back up. there are many elderly people living in these hotels, aging, becoming disable with no way to get in and out. if they could find the hotel that is wheelchair accessible, most of the time they cannot afford it. my own hotel now is $800 a month. when i moved in it was $525. in social security you are getting about $900 a month. they're not affordable. we need to do something about accessibility throughout the building. and again, mine is not accessible to the restroom for people with disabilities. and we don't have anything like that, bars or anything to hold on to in the showers. we have tile floors which are extrem

assets to another. [laughter] amid the dangerous period fannie appointed a new ceo. dan mud. son of roger mud, the tv newscaster. he was an ex-marine, decorated for a dangerous mission in lebanon. now he was stepping in to another mine field. mud saw his job as cleaning up the accounting mess. making nice with the critics of fannie may, meeting the goals for affordable housing loans which had been increased further under president bush and competing with wall street in the mortgage market. wall street was crazy about mortgage especially the riskier kinds. they were profitable. wall street was taking away more and more of the business from fannie and freddie. mud and the colleagues were worried that fannie night become irrelevant. so what should they do? should they go and buy the same kind of crazy mortgages that wall street was buying? or should they step back from the market and wait for a new outbreak of insanity? mud and the colleagues knew that the risks were growing in the housing market. but they underestimated how much worst things could get and they were red blooded american busi

% is reasonable and dan barrett of barrett's spot group is one of the persons cited in the group and he has research in projects like this and sports arenas and other things and in 2011 talking about the kingace project in kak kak he said "a city must do the due diligence with projects like this and particularly with opportunities come risks and challenges and those risks and challenges have to be weighed carefully before you move forward". i do not feel that the current process is giving due weights to the concerns of the neighborhood whose quality of life is going to suffer traditionally unless mitigations are made and if this project is so great for san francisco and i hope it is. we have tickets for warriors tickets. we request there is nothing wrong to put it front of the citizenry and with respectful deliberation. thank you. >> thank you. >> sue hester i got my feet wet in this area by participating in the giants project, and that went on for several years, and the giants showed us all how it is done. they worked with the community, the community of their neighbors, the broader
. and maureen dowd, and dan, if they had to vote for susan rice and nothing would make a big chunk of the chatting class in the media in president obama's second term to be sort of light critics, some detachment and ironic distance and meanwhile the agenda goes forward and tarnishment will not stop her being the next secretary of state. >> if the press did their job there would be different questions. >> if they did, that's a huge "if." . >> the former head of the ceo david petraeus, his belief that the attacks were carried out and planned as terrorism attacks, and then came his resignation from the cia. the new york times put this piece out, a phony hero for a phony war, lucien trustcot, and then david petraeus in the iraq and afghanistan conflicts, no matter how good he looked in his biographer-mistress's book, it doesn't make up for the fact that we failed to conquer countries we invaded and ended up occupying undefeated nations. >> that's an attack on petraeus and salute from slate magazine, a book coming out called the insurgent, spent a lot of time with patz and questions and
the issue of entertainment. eastern neighborhoods did not even address it because as dan snyder told me in the past if they brought up entertainment it would blow the whole plan apart. they don't even address entertainment. we do. >> i want to make sure that our commissioners get a chance to ask you questions later and i think you've did a very good job of repeating what mr. teague has properly presented. >> one final paragraph. >> okay. >> the proposal before you is the best effort of the entire community to balance entertainment with all the other competing interest that go into making a complete neighborhood and that works for everybody. thank you. >> thank you very much. i appreciate all your effort on this. >> thank you. >> >> thank you jim and hopefully we have a good understanding of the entertainment issues and the scenarios that are available for consideration. can i get the overhead again? so to pivot a little bit away from controls and zoning entertainment and talk a little bit about implementation in terms of impact fees that maybe generate and what they maybe spent on.
conservation. we have steve from the engineering group. we have dan -- who i see i missed. excuse me. we have dpw who did the design for the area. we have them with the living classroom and maybe it was going to be in another area but it's going to be here at the port of san francisco and had the help of a number of agencies and the parks department and keeping as gorgeous and welcoming as it is. this part was not a park for long. originally this was supposed to be a terminal and imagine if we can containers stacked around here. instead we have a place for humans to come and enjoy, dogs to come and enjoy, the children come and learn about the natural habitat about one of the areas that is best weather wise and we are proud to reinvent ourselves and use our ability to make it all better. i would like to thank the mta with their vision and the blue green way on cargo lane and of course last but not least the park of rec and park and without them we wouldn't be here today having this great celebration and i hope you come back with your dogs, with your families and picnic and enjoy yours
life. with me today, dan shah letterman of making change at walmart. carmen wong a personal finance expert and president of ulta wealth management. peter goodman, executive business editor for the huffington post and heather mcgee from the progressive think tank. nice to see you all. >> thanks. >> walmart has said not such a big deal. a couple dozen people walked out. we had record profits. how do you respond to that poo pooing of the labor pushback. >> i wish i could say i was surprised. this is walmart's typical response, to ignore the fact that there are problems inside of the store. hundreds and hups of workers went on strike across the country. they went on strike because walmart continues to illegally retaliate for those who want to speak up and make a change at walmart. these workers went on strike even the days leading up to it when walmart was threatening them with termination, threatening with some being sued for lost revenue. these workers still had the courage to stand up. on top of that, we just saw an incredible outpouring of support from the community that i've never
in this recovery. >> then, dan, are we feeling this way? you share the view that we are not -- we're not done with the fiscal cliff. we're not going to suddenly solve our fiscal problems. we certainly haven't been talking it up on the spending side. we've agreed -- we haven't agreed but there seems to be a movement toward the idea that some taxes will go up on the high end and the middle class won't see much of a tax increase. are we justified? >> i think the typical consumer is not like you and me and the other guests there. the typical consumer makes about $60,000 a year for their family. they're not getting tax dividends so they're not freaked up about those going up. they're concerned about their paychecks and paychecks have been more steady for the first time in several years, wages have gone up a little bit, and the biggest asset people own is a house. it's not just a volume of sales rising and construction but home values. and so with every passing week, a certain number of people who are under water on their mortgages are now in positive territory. and that contributes to what we call
haunted by a horrifying past. cnn white house correspondent dan lothian traveled with the president on that trip, and he gives us a chilling look at history. >> reporter: the road to the killing fields on the outskirts of phnom penh is dusty and at times only partly paved. a 30-minute ride into this country's painful past when some 2 million people were killed under pol pot's brutal rule, a man some refer to as the hitler of cambodia. this is the truck stop where people were brought, some from prisons or elsewhere. sometimes it was hundreds by truck each day. some held out hope. others knew it was the end. this is where they came to die. they were all accused of crimes against the state. most were killed the night they arrived here. others were kept alive for a few more hours in small steel and wood structures that were once right here on this spot. this man, who begs for money and food every day along the fence surrounding the killing fields, says his brother was arrested, brought here, and murdered by the khmer rouge. it's sad, he says, while cnn can't verify his account, our tran

. >> yeah, thank you very much. >>> glue afternoon commissioners dan fratten with ruben and geniuses and i would like to start by reminding you what the efficiency dwelling unit legislation is, it's not a radical change it's legislation that would reduce the minimum allowable unit size by 70 square feet for a very long time, san francisco has allowed a 220 square foot minimum area for living area this makes it 750 square feet. we see from a 220 square foot units what kind of effects we might expect and they are already a part of our housing market and there is just not going to be a big change. i think a lot of the opposition to this -- excuse me this legislation is really driven by a lot of unfounded fears and a lot of prejudice about who will be live engine them this this mornings chronicle the short arch overed this rational for the cap. crash pad apartments will be for people who work in the silicon value quay who need a play place to sleep and party. new comers who come here to have fun and then hop on the google bus. i think so it's unfortunate that in 2012, we are still having de

in the air. people were still uncomfortable about walter having stepped down and dan rather stepping in. i think there was competition. there was jealousy. there was envy. i think on walter's part there was some regret. he was such a young man to leave that job. he was such an icon even in his own day. what made me excited was that, through all of that, the culture of storytelling and reporting did not change at all. in some ways, it gradually did start to change at cbs. but, for me, i could not believe it. i felt like these people were so professional. i was scared to death. that is a good thing, i think, that you feel like you have a lot of experience and you have done a lot of reporting and producing and you understand television news, but you are surrounded people who are really good and challenge you. i love that. i felt like i was able to learn some of the more traditional values you will at the school that started in our building. i will talk about those a little bit as we go. i also got very fortunate because i ended up overseas within about three years. based in london. i recommen

to thank my colleague, dan rothschild here who helped bring this all together. he's had an interest in this issue for a long time, as have i and it's timely and important that we start talking about these things. there's been a tension at the heart of the conservative movement's approach to immigration for at least as long as i've followed politics and a lot longer than that. there are two influential camps that have jockeyed to define the right approach to immigration policy. this will be accrued generalization, but i believe a fair one. on the one hand there are economic libertarians. they don't mind so much the presence of large numbers of immigrants here in the united states illegally. and they would also welcome much more legal immigration as well. we can call this the "wall street journal" wing. on the other hand there's social and law and order conservatives, who are concerned about preserving america's unique culture and the maintenance of social order. to these conservatives the presence of large numbers of people in the united states and in violation of american law is inh
